    Default How to calculate & return highestmonth and lowestmonth as string in interactions tab?

    Trying to create a getHightestMonth out of the Arrays made and return the string of the month for the highest number listed in the array.
    <   public class RainFall
       {  
       // Instance variable
          private String[] monthNames = {"January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"};
          private double[] values;
     
       // Constructor method
          public RainFall()
          {
             // Nothing to do yet, but good practice to always include a
             // no-argument constructor method
          }
     
       // Overloaded Constructor method - accepts an array of doubles
          public RainFall(double [] newArray)
          {
             values = new double [newArray.length];
     
             for(int i = 0; i < values.length; i++) {
                values[i] = newArray[i]; 
             }
     
     
          }
     
       // Adds up and return the total of the values in the array numbers
          public double getTotal()
          {
             double total = 0.0;
     
             for (double val : values)
             {
                total += val;
             }
     
             return total;
          }
     
       // Return the mean (average) of the values in array numbers
          public double getAverage()
          {
             double average = 0.0;
             average = getTotal() / values.length;
     
             return average;
          }
     
       // Return the Highest Month
          public String getHighestMonth()
          {
             String hiMonth = ""; 
     
             return hiMonth;
          }
     
       // Return the Lowest Month
          public String getLowestMonth()
          {
             String loMonth = "";
     
             return loMonth;
          }  
       }>

    Default Re: How to calculate & return highestmonth and lowestmonth as string in interactions

    If the array values has the same length as monthNames (obviously being 12) then it is just a matter of getting the index of the highest number in values and return the String in monthNames based on that index.
